This year we have four venues with live entertainment. What ever you do, don’t miss our Keg Tapping Ceremony at 1:00 pm every Saturday when Leavenworth's Mayor will honor a Bavarian Tradition of “tapping the keg”. Then plan on hanging around and checking out music from our own Musikkapelle Leavenworth who will be joined by other musical groups from the US and Germany. Germany's Oktoberfest began in Munich in 1810, as a celebration of Prince Ludwig l married to Princess Therese from Saxony-Hildburghausen. It all began as a wedding feast on the outskirts of Munich where the guest ate, drank and celebrated. It was such a success that it became an annual tradition now enjoyed by more than 10 million people per year. Opening Ceremony Celebration with Official Keg Tapping Noon Parade followed by 1:00 PM Keg Tapping Ceremony. The Muenchner Kindl leads the Bavarian procession with the village people carrying our Countries flags. Leavenworth’s own Musikkapelle rides in a blue and white colorful band wagon, playing those old familiar and traditional Bavarian marches and polkas. Other villagers and visiting guests will be in colorful traditional Bavarian dirndls and lederhosen. Following the band is the Edelweiss Tanz Gruppe and the Bavarian style Bier Wagon, beautifully decorated with red and white carnations. There will also be other horse drawn wagons and a carriage carrying Leavenworth’s mayor and city officials. The procession starts every Saturday at noon on Ski Hill Drive on Hwy 2 and goes down Front Street to the Festhalle, where the fun begins!
